    Beware of the devil prowling like a lion seeking to devour you: 1 Peter 5:8.

    Satan is the father of lies: John 8:44

    In this world if you turn on the TV news you will hear many lies- nearly everything said is a lie. The 'father of lies' could be behind this strong delusion and God allows people to be deceived. 2 Thessalonians 2:11. I see some even prefer the lie, seek the lie, crave and almost lust after the lies. It's hard to believe this is unfolding right now.

    People just don't agree on what the truth is in almost any situation. 1 + 1 = 5 to some people. We have unprecedented oppression and denial of human rights right now in the world. There are many preventable deaths and grave injustices occurring daily. People have made their political views their religion and false god. They worship the government and its leaders, while they slander Jesus and attack conservative Christian values. People keep justifying sin in their own mind like satan whispering in their ear what to believe, even murder, even mass murder. No sin seems to be off limits to someone following the father of lies. Some even call themselves Christians while supporting the mass murder of babies.

    But all the justifications for sin end up being the same: it's not that bad. It's my right. Everyone's doing it. If I didn't do it, someone else will. It's not what you say it is. No one will ever know. What they don't know won't hurt them. What happens here stays here.

    All clever ways satan deceives you into harming others and yourself. It's as though people are digging tunnel to hell.

    People desperately need Jesus. Everyone will burn to hell without Him. Some people need to wake up and some need to be scared for their soul. This life is a test and most are failing miserably.

    Pray for this world. Pray for healing. Pray that some will open their eyes and finally be able to see the truth.

    Amen Derek.

    We live in a world of Deceit. and distractions by the world and its affairs. In fact we have become worldly as a hold.

    We are to be separated!

    God bless.

    Our motivation is love of God agapeo for others thanks to the love we were given in Christ the unbelievers sole purpose is self motivated by false pride and fear. Epistle of 1 John 4:13-21. God Bless Our purpose motivate by Love. His goal manipulate with fear. We conqueror with the LOVE OF GOD manifested in our walk and talk. God Bless.

    Derek,

    We are all aware of what's going on, we don't need to hear it again. How do you stop such a force that's meant to be? Have you organized to squash these ills where you live? Writing about history is easy, making history takes guts.

    God bless you, Donald. What you say is truth.

    Donald, if you didn't like my comment why did you reply to it? You then said 'we dont need to hear it again'- who is the 'we' you are referring to and does your opinion somehow represent everyone on this website? With hundreds of thousands now dead from the experimental covid vaccine and many vaccinated even more vulnerable to sickness and death, do you think we should stay silent and accept all injustices like this without question? What if one person sees a comment like this and it saves someones life or some realizes the end times are near and decides to accept Jesus, is that not worthwhile?

    You assumed the 'force' is meant to be and that nothing can be done about it. How is that any different than telling people during nazi German occupation to do nothing that the death camps are 'meant to be'?

    The Bible warns us of the end times and the antiChrist and says to be aware for a reason, does it not? The Bible says to keep our armor of God on, etc, does it not? Paul said we're running a race and run to get the prize. If Christians are to be 100% passive and inactive then why would the Bible say all of these things involving action?

    Derek,

    My point is, anyone can identify the problem, complain about it, yet nothing will prevent or put off what is to come our way. It's easy enough to tell what is wrong, but hat's not what I want to hear all night long. How about offering up something revolutionary, like hope?

    Well spoken. I think we are mostly in agreement. May we speak through the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Peaceably. I keep that scripture posted on the cabinet above the coffeemaker, so at least twice a day I am reading it and contemplating what my state of mind (mood) is.

    Those who LOVE MUCH, LOVE JESUS, and careth for the Sheep; let's try to understand each other.

    Say a prayer for each other.

    We are all on Satan's radar and GPS. Ok? I'd rather get hauled up at the Bema Seat for praying too much and giving homemade sandwiches to the homeless...and being asked if I used Mayo or miracle whip :/

    Mishael,

    What about Hellmann's mayo?

    Because there's going to be Hell to pay.
  • Mishael - in Reply
    I always bless the Mayo bottle before I open it.

    At least once a day if not more, I remind Satan and his demons WHERE they are going.

    Jesus never talked to them. He just said GO! Once he did ask one it's name (Legion). He knew. He just wanted them to know they were all about to be surfing the dunes on the planet Mars.

    I'll tell this one testimony. I got home from Sunday night church, was getting ready for bed. The ceilings were 12 feet high. I looked over inside the closet, and there was a vision of a demon standing in it. It was 10ft tall and wide as a deep freeze. It looked like compacted roots It was trying to scare me! I rebuked it by the power and authority of Jesus's Name, and said LEAVE! It left. I had never seen one manifest.

    They have no right to trouble a child of the living God. Jesus showed us how to respond. That's why we memorize scripture. IT IS WRITTEN_____________ IN JESUS NAME.

    I'll keep telling this to everyone: Angels hearken to the spoken word of God; whether it be a radio ministry program or just some nice praise music. :D

    Make a joyful sound!
